ZanySoft Dir (ZDir) is an easy to use and very powerful directory
lister. The main purpose of ZDir is to replace the generic DIR command
with a fast, easily readable display with more functionality. It can
organize the file listing with many sorting options, color files based
upon their extension, choose how many columns to use in the display,
find files, draw a tree of the directory structure, use full-scale
wildcards, and much more. Besides being powerful and easy to use, ZDir
is also easy to configure with the included configuration program
ZDircfg. It is very easy for a novice computer user to learn how to
use ZDir, but has many features that expand upon the basic directory
